Natural Production and Decline of Glutathione

Free Radicals, Glutathione, deficiency in glutathione
Nature does not usually get things wrong. If it is making glutathione in each cell in the body, that itself shows how important it is for the body to function. Even though the body makes this essential nutrient, daily exposure to medications, stress, pollution, infections, radiation and a poor diet all lead to the depletion of glutathione in the body. As you age, your body's ability to produce glutathione reduces.
A deficiency in glutathione has been associated with:
Alzheimer's and other age related diseases
Diseases related to inflammation, such as asthma and arthritis
Slowing down of muscle recovery time
General muscle weakness and low energy levels
A failing immune system
Starting at about 20 years of age, the body begins to slow down the production of glutathione. By the time you are 50 years old, your body only has 60 to 70 percent of the glutathione it had in your teens. This shows a clear connection as to why diseases begin to set in as you grow older.
It is not possible to live without being exposed to all the things that reduce glutathione in the body. This is why it is important to ensure you are getting sufficient amounts through your diet and a supplement.
